    Glen Campbell and Elvis...

    Glen Campbell and Elvis: “Playing with Elvis was a lot of fun,” Campbell says, on the phone from his home in Malibu, California. “He said, Campbell, you finally got on one of my records!” I said, ‘Yeah, I had to do it one way or another.’ Because I had known Elvis for quite a while. he had more charisma than anybody I ever worked with.”
    Like Elvis, Campbell came from desperate poverty. The seventh of 12 children, he was put to work by his sharecropper father at a young age.
    (And) Like Elvis, Campbell had a period of dangerous decadence, except that unlike Elvis, he made it out the other side. In the late 70s, Campbell, until then a model of moderation, indulged more and more heavily in alcohol (“scotch and not a lot of soda” is how he put it) and cocaine, then the drug of choice for high flyers.

    Glenn was a good singer too. I like some of his songs a lot
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic

    Thank you Franny.

    Like a lot of Glen Campbells songs,don`t have much of his stuff in the collection...well...one cheap live album actually! Surprised to hear about his battle with the Devil`s dandruff...glad he made it through though.
    Thanks for this Franny

    If you want to see Glens first acting role watch the Steve McQueen movie
    "Baby the Rain Must Fall" Glen is a member of McQueens band in the movie.

    If anybody wants to hear real talent from a man who still has it at like 70yrs old...get Glen Campbell's new album. If you liked his classic albums like "Witchita Lineman"..etc...that type of production...that is EXACTLY what he gives us. He cut a lot of new or recent songs from the world of rock and made them his own and recording them in the classic way. If you like Glen you should go to his website and there is a video there of him recording the album. That video made me go buy the album. Also, his greatest hits have been remixed like E1 for an album I believe is called "The Best Of Glen Campbell".
